The 2021 African Cup of Nations (CAN) qualifiers will resume. Algeria comes into play on November 12, 2020. They will meet Zimbabwe for a first leg which is scheduled for July 5, 2021 in the capital Algiers.
It was the Algerian Football Federation that announced the resumption of the CAN 2021 qualifiers. The return match is scheduled for November 16 in Harare, Zimbabwe. The two meetings take place behind closed doors without the presence of the public. At issue: the health crisis linked to the coronavirus pandemic present in the country.
As a reminder, Algeria have already faced and defeated Zambia in Blida 5-0 and away Botswana 1-0. He thus becomes the leader of Group H with six points ahead of Zimbabwe which records 4 points.
Algeria at the rank of African champion is thus well on its way to qualifying for CAN 2021 which will take place in Cameroon in 2022. The postponement of the CAN was caused by the spread of Covid-19 across the world.
